Cong launches online ‘Speak Up J&K’ on one year of Article 370’s abrogation
8/4/2020 11:59:48 PM


JAMMU, Aug 4: Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) today launched an online five days campaign ‘speak up Jammu and Kashmir’ urging people and youth to join over the effects of abrogation of special status and disbanding and downgrading of historical Dogra state into UT.
This was disclosed here today by the PCC Chief Spokesperson Ravinder Sharma along with General Secretary PCC, Manmohan Singh, while speaking to media persons, who said that the online campaign shall continue till 9th August, when formal notification was issued by the President of India in this regard.
He said party has posed four main questions to the BJP and the govt, which were described as the main thing to be achieved while abrogating special status and disbanding of state. They were end to terrorism and restoration of normalcy, creation of lot of jobs in govt and private sector, including 50,000 jobs in three months, complete check on corruption, and flood gates for development and industrialization. Questioning the ruling BJP, he said that after one year the party asks whether terrorism has died down and normalcy restored, what has happened to the promise of providing large scale jobs in the govt and in the private sector, result oriented achievements to check corruption and massive action against corrupt and where are flood gates for the development and progress of Jammu and Kashmir. He said the people would share their views whether they have achieved these targets post abrogation and downgrading of the historical Dogra state into UT and when the statehood which was disbanded and downgraded against the wish of the people, would be restored with safeguards for the protection of jobs and land to local youth of J&K, as promised by BJP. Countering claims in this regard, he said as far as the issue of normalcy in Valley, Sharma said imposition of curfew in entire valley from today and extraordinary security measures in entire UT, continued restrictions and lack of any routine political activities along with ongoing restrictions on restoration of 4G are the indicators of the failures to achieve normalcy even after one year. He said BJP should explain the disbanding and downgrading of the historically important state into UT with no voice of people. The people should be restored their status and rights but their rights were snatched without taking them into confidence. The youth are annoyed and people are fed up with false promises.
